Well, Thanks-giving has come and gone. Hope everyone had a fantastic long weekend with family and friends. The weather even co-operated, (for the most part).
Have you ever found an object from a thrift store or a garage sale, and just know what you are going to do with it even though your idea is totally "out of the box". Well, I have, over and over again! My find this time, was a small corner cupboard that I found in a thrift store….I think I paid $3.00 for it. There were crayon markings on the inside, so I’m thinking it was in a child’s bedroom or playroom….
This is what it looked like when I brought it home…..
I had already taken the door off and started painting it before I took the pictures. (Oh well, you get the idea).
The finished louver door….
I bought it to go out in the garden somewhere, but wasn’t totally sure where.
I painted the inside and outside with exterior white paint. The small shelves inside, a red, the door a deep turquoise with yellow on the louvers. My previous post on the “brass chandelier make-over”, will explain my colour choices.
And this is the finished CORNER CUPBOARD
I had two small clay birds that fit perfectly on the little shelves inside. I also had two red glass candle holders.
I decided to hang it in a tree….
I left it hanging in the tree for a week or so, then decided to remove it and place it on top of an antique milk can. I did tether the shelf to a branch to save it from falling because of animals or wind…
On top of the milk can
I think it’s rather cute, and a great way of repurposing!!!!
Have fun thinking of ways to re-use your things. It certainly doesn’t need to be what it was intended for.
We’ll have to wait and see where it ends up next year!
Have a wonderful week…..Until next time, Judy
